For nearly a century, the building at 234 West Florida Street housed massive knitting machines. The big cream city brick was home to a couple of different companies over the years. A few years back, when the last knitting machine vanished from the building, the old cream city brick was promptly turned into a home for upscale condo—er—business—(Busimess offices ?) Yes—it’s now a business building and, I guess, not a condo for wealthy out-of-towners. (Weird.)

In any case . . . this summer, the building in question is playing host to Milwaukee Chamber Theatre’s Gala Fundraiser Cheers To Chamber! The event happens on Friday, June 10th from 7 – 10pm. Attendees will be treated to hors d’oevres, entertainment, a silent auction and more. For more info, call 414-276-8842.


The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
